- HOW IT WORKS –
The Blackfly consists of 4 springs arranged from a low to high pitch. Stricking, strumming, scraping or plucking these springs will create a wide spectrum of sonic textures. Where you play the on the spring and how much pressure applied will yield various effects.
Swat - This is a momentary switch. depressing the button will create cool cut-up effects!
Swarm – This dial when turned from Left to Right will determing the range of frequency being transmitted by the unit.
Tuning - After playing the Blackfly it may be necessary to “tune” the springs by tightening the nuts. The hardware of this instrument was kept as flexible as possible (like a guitar) so that modifications can be made. As with all our pedals, there’s no right way to use it. Experiment and have fun!
- POWER – No power is required to operate the EF110!
